  1. Psalm 86:16 He boasteth not of his own virtues, but confesseth that God of his free goodness hath ever been merciful unto him, and given him power against his enemies, as to one of his own household.

16 Turn to me(A) and have mercy(B) on me;
    show your strength(C) in behalf of your servant;

    for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
